Tuesdays With Dorie Week One: White Bread

Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that make you truly happy.  You know, dumb things like thinking you’re out of toilet paper and then turning around and seeing another roll on the tank behind you.  Or wrapping up in a warm towel right out of the dryer after a shower.  Homemade white bread is kinda like that.  It’s not complicated…there’s no fancy cheese, or interesting heirloom grains…it’s just white bread.  But warm, out of the oven, with butter, maybe a little jam, or as the foundation for an AMAZING bologna sandwich made with bologna from a real german deli, not that Oscar Meter crap…white bread is pretty damn tasty.  As evidence, I present to you the (formerly large) loaf that I pulled out of the oven about three hours ago:

Yep, more than half gone.  Sandwich?  Check.  Toast with butter and honey?  Check.  Heel of bread eaten all by itself?  Check.  Beat that, whole wheat.

This is the first recipe assignment from Baking With Julia, the second book the lovely ladies and gents at Tuesdays with Dorie are baking their way through.  I missed out the first go round when they baked all the stuff in Baking from My Home to Yours, and I’m giddy as the proverbial schoolgirl to jump in this time.  To check out what everyone else had to say about the inaugural assignment, hop on over here.

    Wasn’t this fun? I’m hoarding the heel and that very last small piece of gorgonzola dulce for lunch on Friday. Your loaf looks delicious too. I’m looking forward to our next assignment-chocolate dough.

    Toast with butter and honey. Now that sounds like a great idea…

    Love a warm towel right out of the dryer and loved this bread too!

  4. Initially I wasn’t excited about the white bread, but ended up remembering how great white bread is with so many things. Looks like a delicous loaf and so many uses 🙂

    This was fantastic. I can’t believe how great it was for sandwiches, especially. I know that white bread is something that should only be a once-in-a-while thing, but this recipe puts me in danger of making it a habit. Yours rose beautifully!
